We used:


We buy our glue in bulk so we used these squeeze bottles, but the Dollar Tree sells three packs of glue, and if you use those you can just empty a bit of the glue out, add the ingredients and shake well.  For each doodle paint you want to add food coloring and the scent that best corresponds to that color.

The paints can be stored and used for future play, too.  They can also be used in arts and crafts as a fun colored and scented glue.

Have kids doodle on wax paper, and once the creations are dry you will have fun window clings. We plan to make Fall leaf window clings for our windows using these paints. 


Adding scent to our normal doodle paint recipe was a really nice way to get rid of the school glue smell.  While I did not encourage the girls to directly sniff the paints, it was nice to have all the best aroma's of Fall waffling through the air instead of the glue smell.

The paints really did smell just like Fall!
